The number of Americans searching for jobs in Canada has increased a whopping 58 percent since last year. And some are speculating it's because of the especially rough election season.
Jobs posting platform Monster Worldwide saw 30,296 job queries on its website using the keyword "Canada" between January and October of this year, a jump from the 19,693 in all of 2015.
The job title most searched for by Americans looking to work in Canada was engineers. American job seekers were looking in Ontario, specifically the city of Toronto, followed by the provinces of Alberta and British Columbia.
The authors of the Monster report set out to explore the hypothesis that the scandal-ridden presidential election cycle was actually driving citizens, especially white-collar workers, to consider moving up north.
Their numbers support it.
